First on the agenda is a theoretical explanation for the perpetuation of the American two-party system. This involves several varying theories which work interdependently to account for the longevity of our unique political system. Next comes a look at the tangible and not-so tangible constraints facing minor political parties in the United States. A general theory of third party support is then offered to assist the reader in comprehending the conditions conducive for the rise of minor parties.

Ultimately, the author extrapolates to illuminate the development of Green politics, the study of which involves many facets of the contemporary American Green Movement.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
